2nd Special Town Election Information
As you may be aware, the Town is facing unprecedented times with two vacancies on the Board of Town Commissioners. The vacancy is first due to the resignation effective June 24th of Commissioner Kai Bernal-LeClaire to take a job opportunity out of state, and the second due to the sudden passing of Commissioner Wanda Leonard on June 30th. A special election had already been scheduled for July 27th to fill Commissioner Bernal-LeClair’s seat, however, due to the tight restrictions of the Town Charter, the timeline did not allow for us to have just one special election to fill both vacancies. This caused the Town to schedule two separate Special Elections to elect one Commissioner each.
While one election is completed, results here, there is still a 2nd election scheduled for Monday, August 10th, 2020. Polls are open from 1PM until 8PM at Town Hall located at 14211 School Lane Upper Marlboro MD 20772.
The Town will be following strict CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. All voters will be temperature-screened at the door, and social distancing and masks are required while in the polling place.
